Our practice is pleased to offer your family access to virtual pediatric Dermatology care through several platforms.

DermatologistsOnCall

This service allows your family to receive fast and secure care from a board-certified pediatric dermatologist, Robin Gehris, MD.  Through our partnership with DermatologistOnCall, you can request a consultation for skin, hair and nail treatment.

The DermatologistOnCall portal is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week so you can submit a request on your time. Patients using this service can expect to receive a response in the DermatologistOnCall portal from Dr. Gehris within 3 business days. Please note this is not a live video visit and should not be used for life threatening emergencies. There is a $75 fee for this service.

To get stared, visit DermatologistOnCall and scroll down on the page and click the Start Visit button under Dr. Gehris' photo.

eDermatology

If you have UPMC insurance, and you already have a MyUPMC account with proxy access for your child, another option is to use eDermatology.upmc.com using your MyUPMC username and password. If you choose this option, please request that UPMC Children's Dermatology Services perform your e-visit so that your child's care is conducted by one of our providers. When submitting your request, simply tell us about your symptoms and then upload photos of your skin concern using a cell phone, tablet or camera. We'll get back to you with professional medical advice, a diagnosis and treatment plan within 3 business days. We'll even send medication orders to your pharmacy if appropriate.

For questions and assistance regarding eDermatology or MyUPMC, call our support team at 1-866-884-8579 and select option 2 or send an email to help@myupmc.com.
